I have a server (9 yr old Dell with Ubuntu 10.04 Server Edition) and a workstation (a laptop with Vista) which are both connected to a router. The workstation is able to access the server via web browser for testing my web development projects.
Since the server is old and does not have a wireless card, I am wondering if it is possible to connect the server directly to the workstation while maintaining the ability to connect to the server from the workstation.
The reason is that the computers are in a separate room from the router and I am trying to limit the amount of wires on the floor, along with trying to avoid buying more hardware (like a wireless card).
Thanks and I will be more than happy to clarify!
